The Protectorate of Isla Maxi is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its soft-spoken computers, daily referendums, and national health service. The compassionate population of 1.612 billion Isla Maxians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Turam. The average income tax rate is 95.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Isla Maxian economy, worth 238 trillion Euros a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 148,027 Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation is noticeably more cheerful on Tuesdays, human tissue is grown in vats as a delicacy as well as for transplants, the government has instituted 'traveller reservations' across the country, and a sledgehammer and a spray can are seen as the default tools of political debate. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Isla Maxi's national animal is the Crow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Isla Maxi is ranked 5,744th in the world and 21st in Spiritus for Largest Governments, scoring 39.5 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
